Chapter 408: The Bathhouse Massacre (Part One)
Why was this woman smart?
She knew to quickly deal with the blood-stained clothes Xu Cheng wore. Anyways, Xu Cheng just needed to lean on the edge of the bath quietly with his eyes closed, and when the police came to ask, it was also this woman that communicated with the place and told them that they knew nothing about someone dying next-door. The police didn’t find anything suspicious and moved on with their investigation.
After the police left, Xu Cheng finally opened his eyes and smiled at that woman. “How much do you still need?’
That woman paused there for a while before finally answering, “You already gave our manager money.”
Xu Cheng: “How much can you get?”
The woman: “I don’t know.”
Xu Cheng: “Why do you have to sell yourself on this market? With your wits, you can easily find a good job to feed yourself.”
The woman: “The debt is too much, I can’t pay it back at all with a normal job. Besides, my dad forced me to do this to pay back his debt, I cannot defy his words.”
Xu Cheng: “I have a job here, I don’t know if you dare to do it or not. It doesn’t involve you selling your body.”
The woman lowered her head. After thinking for a while, she looked up at Xu Cheng and said, “How much?”
“200 thousand dollars,” Xu Cheng said.
That woman bit her lip and said, “What do I need to do?”
“Over the next few days, I need an assistant. You don’t have to do much, you just need to be my tour guide and take me wherever I want to go. When I tell you to stay somewhere, you stay there and wait for me. After everything’s taken care of, I will give you 200 thousand dollars,” Xu Cheng said.
The woman asked curiously, “Killing people?”
Xu Cheng: “You can refuse.”
The woman said, “Alright, I will do it.”
Then, Xu Cheng climbed out of the bath and put on his clothes. Seeing him leaving, the woman subconsciously said, “Don’t you want it?”
“Want what?” Xu Cheng asked as he put on his jacket.
The woman shyly said, “Me to serve you. You already paid the money, and I also learned a lot of tricks to please people over the past few days.”
Xu Cheng directly walked past her, not paying attention to her body at all.
“Put on your clothes, I will wait for you outside.”
The woman was left there in a daze. She looked at her body, then looking at the man that just walked past her like he couldn’t care less, she felt something that she didn’t know how to explain. After getting changed, she went outside and Xu Cheng told her to get them a cab. She asked, “Where are we going?”
Xu Cheng: “Xinsu’s Sanko Street.”
That woman frowned, “I’ve never heard of such a street in Xinsu though.”
The elderly driver said at this time, “There is, it’s just a name they used in the past. You are young so you don’t know, that’s where the Sanko Group was founded. The older generations that are involved in this business know about that place, so it’s normal that people haven’t heard of it. Are you sure you are going? If we are going, I’m charging double, because the people there will collect a protection fee from me. Deal or no deal?” (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
“Let’s go,” Xu Cheng said (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
The driver stepped on the gas and drove off.
After arriving at that old street, Xu Cheng took a look at the deep alleys connecting to this main street. It was a place with tons of night businesses, and there were also people chatting discretely and passing goods around. (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
